The focus of Little Bear Gives will be to provide CVI iPad packages to families in need who have children with CVI. A family at any income level may be considered for this project. The term “family in need” applies to any family who may not be able to afford an iPad for a variety of reasons. We know that many children with CVI have complex medical or other needs that can be very expensive, making it difficult to find the money to invest in an iPad. We believe the iPad can be an amazingly powerful tool in the life of a child with CVI. iPads are uniquely suited to the needs of those with CVI because they are backlit, easy to interact with, and there is a huge variety of apps available to suit the particular needs and preferences of each child.
For these reasons, we are excited to announce that we are giving away another iPad through our Little Bear Gives project! Our iPad package includes:
- An iPad (current generation)
- A copy of our CVI-specific app: Tap-n-See Now*!
- A copy of our book about CVI: Little Bear Sees: How Children with Cortical Visual Impairment Can Learn to See
* You must have an iTunes account in order to receive the app.
We are not currently accepting applications. The current application cycle ended on April 30, 2014. Check back later or sign up for our newsletter to get news about the next cycle.
